“The war in Ukraine will have adverse mental health effects on individuals and communities around the world.

We hope you are staying healthy and beating the heat this June. As many of your members may be taking vacations over the summer, we’d like to share the attached resource including suggested steps to take before leaving the office, which may be of interest. Summer is also the perfect time to refer a colleague to PRMS – if you or your members know a resident or other psychiatric colleague interested in PRMS’ insurance program, you can earn donations to benefit your organization, or another nonprofit working to advance mental healthcare initiatives, by making a referral to PRMS. Start referring by visiting


Over the last few months, PRMS has supported a number of these organizations, including our recent support of The Trevor Project and Child Mind Institute in May for Mental Health Awareness Month, and Association of LGBTQ+ Psychiatrists (AGLP) and Boris Henson Foundation this June. In April, PRMS hosted an in-office service project for employees to support Kraftlove, a local nonprofit organization that provides art kits to hospitalized children in the Washington, DC-area. You can read about the latest box assembly project PRMS took part in for Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day and see photos from the event here.


Lastly, we are thrilled to announce the launch of our Instagram account! Follow us at @PRMSprograms for the latest news, PRMS travels, and more. Instagram joins our other social media channels, including FacebookLinkedIn, and Twitter, to keep you and your members up-to-date on PRMS activities and initiatives.


Wishing you a safe and fun summer season!
